Say hello to Thomas Voeckler

Eurosport | Meet Mr. Voeckler

Eurosport offers a quick profile of Thomas Voeckler, who looks likely to wear the yellow jersey for at least a few more days:

"But I'm not fooling myself. I know I'm not a threat for the big guys on this race; I'm not at their level. When the race hits the hills, it's going to be tough. But believe me, I won't throw in the towel. I'll gut it out in this jersey as long as I possibly can."

Voeckler is riding in his 4th professional season.

Given the number of riders nearing the end of their Tour years (Armstrong, Ullrich, Hamilton, Julich, Virenque, Zabel, O'Grady, and McEwen are all between 30 and 34), this year's white jersey competition and a few riders who have competed for it in the last few years takes on extra significance.

Yellow jersey Voeckler, today's sprint winner Tom Boonen, yesterday's breakaway Sandy Casar, prologue winner Fabian Cancellara, and this year's Giro d'Italia winner, Damiano Cunego, who's sitting at home, are all under 25 and look likely to play a key role in Tours over the next decade.
